Re: Time per gigatype RAM with NN engines to exhaustion

I was under the impression that NN engines didn't need nearly as much traditional hash space as AB engines. Is that not correct? NN engines use hash to store evaluations of positions, you can define this in parameters of LC0 like nn cache size. But the MCTS needs to store the search tree in memory ...

Re: get a tr3 workstation configured

Hmm, you seem to search in three classes, desktop PC, workstation and server. With servers the noise level and heat production does not matter, so you are free to pick 2 socket systems and up to 8 or 10 gpus. The question I ponder on is how to put up to two CPUs and up to four GPUs in an desktop or ...
